Commonwealth Bank - Treatment of Subsequent Utilisation of Funds

Commonwealth advised in November 2018 that they were making changes to the way they calculate upfront broker commissions for home loans.

They made the changes with the goal of improving customer outcomes as our guiding principle. At that time, they also advised that they would continue to monitor and review all broker and customer outcomes of this change.

As a result of your feedback and their ongoing monitoring and reviewing process, they would like to advise you of a further enhancement to these changes.
